I’ve lived in a lot of different places around the country. When I was in college at Florida State, I got my first true taste of independence. I lived in the dorms my first year of college. That honestly was not much different than living with my parents. There was a Resident Assistant who was watching our every move and even monitored the volume of our music and shenanigans. Living with another person that I had never met in a very small room was not exactly ideal either.
The next year I moved into an off campus apartment that was all student housing, and this was one of the best college living experiences. It was all students, so I was surrounded by like-minded people with the same goal of finishing school. There was no one looking over my shoulder this time. I was able to do what I wanted, when I wanted to, but I still had responsibilities I had to take care of. I recommend off campus student housing to anyone who will listen.
One of the things that GSX Ventures specializes in is luxury student housing. The Star View Plaza is a beautiful facility that is within walking distance from the University of Maryland. In addition to beautiful living quarters, it offers yoga facilities, a lounge, café, and study areas. It is the perfect place for a student to start the transition into the real world while going to school. Located right in the middle of College Park, the student without wheels can walk to anything they need. It is surrounded by dozens of restaurants, grocery stores, pharmacies, and retail shops.
GSX Ventures has dozens of student housing facilities all located within walking distance of Brown University in Rhode Island, Virginia Commonwealth University, and SUNY Albany, just to name a few. All of these buildings offer the same state of the art student facilities with everything you could ask for, and some things you wouldn’t think to ask for, like tanning facilities. But while providing all these amenities, what these properties truly offer is the freedom and accessibility that is needed for the true maturing process to begin.
GSX Ventures has been leading change in the development of student housing. Since 1988 we have developed numerous projects across the country to provide outstanding facilities for students.
